News: Day-to-day working life of a prostitute revealed by investigation

Another Lincolnshire Highlights news story…

An investigation has flagged up the plight of prostitutes working in an English town.

Twenty to 30 active prostitutes operate in Grimsby and work the same patch hoping to get their day’s work.

Their ages range from 21 to 50, but there are potentially more who are younger and are earning a living in this way, reports Grimsby Live.

They compete for customers and head out early in the morning to get ahead of the game.

One woman even heads out on crutches, and some working girls are trying to attract customers yards from the spot where a woman was raped.

The women can work at times for just a few hours, but other times they can be there for entire days, as they try to earn as much as £400 per day to cope with their addictions.

Grimsby Live spoke with two “working girls”, ‘Sam’, 21, and ‘Jane’, 35, who both turned to prostitution to fund the drug habit that was practically forced on them by family members that they trusted.

Sam said that she needs to earn £400 a day in order to fund her crack cocaine addiction, and when desperate she also turns to shoplifting, thefts, and robbing her customers at knife point.

Jane can manage on a smaller budget. She managed to beat the heroin habit that crippled her for years, but is still an alcoholic.

They have both described what has driven them to sell their bodies to complete strangers, and how they have become desensitised to the work that they do.

Every day that they work on the streets puts them at risk, and they both spoke about the dangerous men they encounter. Although they have also said that they have many “lovely” customers who sometimes just want someone to talk to when they are lonely.

They can be as young as 16 or as old as 87.

‘Disgusting’

Jane said: “Most of the customers that you meet you never have a problem with, but there are certain types of people and the odd bad one who will be very violent towards us and beat us up. It is like they think that they can do whatever they want to us.

“The most dangerous thing that I have seen girls do is getting into a car or van with multiple men, from my experience it never seems to end well. There are also younger women that will team up and join three or four men as a pair, but even then its not safe, some of them just don’t realise what they are getting themselves into.

“Then there are some men you will ask you to do the weirdest things possible, things that are so disgusting that you have to hurt them to get away from them.

“There was one man who asked me to pretend to be 12-year-old girl with her father, and act like we were trying to hide what we were doing from the mum.

“Then he revealed to me that he actually had a daughter that age and I was sick, I essentially ripped one of his testicles off after that, there was no way I was helping him in that sick fantasy. I then gave his registration number to the police because I was so worried about what he might do.”
